Riverside El School 3

My son just started here, i would give it 3 stars so far. I'm happy because the school is more organized with the homework and he gets homework on friday, which i don't mind and the work is harder. i must say i will see how it goes and if it doesn't work out i will be thinking of charter school.

It is said to say but this is the worst school my daughter has ever been to. We relocated back to Reading, and I was hoping that the stereo types about Reading school district were not true, but they are. It is unfortunate for our inner city youth. I plan to relocate out of the city just so my child has a better education. Her teacher was horrible as well, if you do not like your job quite!

I was completly horrified with the lack of care, safety, education, concern, and resposabilty from this school. My children lasted there less than 3 months. We had enough. I don't say I do not recommend anyone to go there because not all the teachers are neglectful in that school. But I will NEVER let my children go back there, I rather work two extra jobs and put them through private school, before they end up back in that school.
